Knowing Before Doing?

George Siemens, Connectivism Blog, Jun 30, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens observes, "The desire to control and manage communities... [is] at odds with how things need to happen for online spaces to prosper." Quite right. People always seems to feel they need to manage the outcome, even if they don't know what it is they are managing or what outcome they desire. "Instead of trying to force these tools into organizational structures, let them exist for a while. See what happens. Don't decide the entire solution in advance. See the process as more of a dance than a structured enactment of a solution." Artichoke (who seems to have a stuck bold key) also comments.
